Trump Without Teleprompter More Raw; But Message Still Received When Scripted

On the heels of yesterday's cowardice act, I'd like to say prayers for all who were directly and indirectly affected by the heinous act. To shoot an unarmed person who is of no threat to you speaks volumes. I am so glad that I serve a God who tells me not to judge anyone, lest I be judged (Matthew 7:1). I am so glad that Jesus living and breathing on the inside of me lets me love even those who would be easier for me not to (2Corinthians 13:5). I am glad that I believe we should hate the sin and love the sinner (1Corinthians 6:9).
That said, I would like to suggest that we bring morning prayers back to the public schools. I would like to suggest that it become okay again to have elementary-aged students in detention write the Ten Commandments as 'punishment'. I would like to suggest that high-schools be run more as military academies than fun, carefree havens. And lastly, I would like to suggest that every male between the ages of 18 and 30, serve two years in a branch of the military, as required in China.
We are living in a 'new' America. Preparation is a necessary defense. Guns are not the problem. A hatred for our nation and what it stands for is. In a few short months, barring the unforeseen, I predict that Donald J. Trump will be our next U.S. President. His V-P pick should be someone who is experienced and poised. I wish it could have been Fiorina. Perhaps Jan Brewer, former Governor of Arizona might be on the short list. I really believe Ben Carson should consider the lead job in the Department of Education. If anyone could get the prayer conversation back in center-stage it would be him. As a product of the public-school system I think he would be a great asset to creating necessary changes to help youngsters succeed. Secretary of State should be someone with a strong Defense background. For some reason, Gingrich comes to mind.
That's it. Prayers for all. Prayers for all. 


Politics In A Nutshell

Yes, it's been a minute. And, yet so little has changed, in politics that is!  Several famous people have died, what for most of us seems prematurely. But the big news of the day remains politics. Hillary, Bernie, and Donald J. are in what sometimes seems like a middle-school raucous act vying for the highest office of the land. I have really gone round and round about for whom to vote. Because I am up to my ears in career politicians, Hillary is out. However, Donald J. is a big man, with a big mouth, and a big wallet. He is not used to losing, and is very used to saying thank you for looking out with the stroke of a pen to a blank check. His biggest blot is his inability to know when to 'shush'. Thankfully, today he has chosen to go mum on his stomp-down of the judge. Thank you. Clearly, there are a lot of people who are concerned that the judge is a member of La Raza. It's kind of like a judge who is a member of the Black Panthers or KKK. Ethical concerns stir. But, sadly, if he wasn't being sued for a less-than stellar job-producing online 'university' the judge would probably be his 'friend'. Speaking of less than stellar online colleges with poor job-producing degrees, I personally 'own' one of those 2-cent degrees from a university whose head guy says Trump is his friend; which sparks a reminder for a need for college overhaul. Donald Trump is clearly a flawed human being. With that said, aren't we all? Is he the best of the three? I wish I could clearly say without a doubt, YES! However, I've been reading Bernie's plan for funding college and health care. He wants to 'repay' the little man for bailing out the big man a decade ago. Hands up. I'm sure when November arrives and I enter the booth, it will come clear who will get the nod. As it stands, unless some major change occurs, the ticket will read Hillary v. Donald J.; which means the answer will be clear. We'll see.
